The intestine is one of the major osmoregulatory organs in fish. During the salmon parr–smolt transformation, the intestine must change its functions from the freshwater (FW) role of preventing water inflow, to the seawater (SW) role of actively absorbing ions and water. This development can be assessed as an increased intestinal fluid transport (Jv) during the parr– smolt transformation. The developmental changes taking place during parr–smolt transformation are governed by a number of… CONTINUE READING
